Status:IUCN 2003 and IUCN/SSC Action Plan (2001) Lower Risk (lc).
Comments:Long confused with perspicillata or subrufa; see Pine (1972). Range restricted to N South America and E Panama by Baker et al. (2002), who referred all Central American records (from W Panama north through Mexico) to sowelli. It is possible that these taxa occur in sympatry in Panama, but this has not yet been demonstrated.
